Public data on private schools

A database on the U.S. Department of Education website offers a comprehensive resource for families interested in private schools. Some 91% of private schools have responded to a variety of survey questions about such things as:

- demographics
- length of the school year
- college-enrollment rates

Survey results are posted to the site in a searchable format that provides information that may not be otherwise available to the public. An overview of the Private School Universe survey can be found here. More info: Washington Post.
